The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Planning a holiday during the cooler months, perhaps a winter weekend's walking with your four-legged friend or a Valentine's celebration with your loved one? If so, one of our holiday cottages with an open fire might appeal - and we've stacks to choose from dotted about the countryside or near to the coast.
Wake up to cold, crisp mornings and then head down to your open fire to enjoy that first morning brew. Move briefly for a refill then spend a leisurely morning lingering by that warming glow. Or wrap up and head outdoors for an exciting day hiking, cycling, riding or simply touring by car. See a few sights, enjoy a spot of shopping, have a lazy lunch out. Do a lot or a little then retreat to your welcoming cottage with that real open fire.
By now it could be turning dark outside, a time when you fancy nothing more than snuggling close to that crackling real fire, toasting your toes 'til you tingle all over. Whether you share the rug with your kids, your partner, your pals or your pet, you'll be so glad you booked a self-catering cottage with that warming open fire!
Some cottages have traditional open fires and burn both logs and coal, others have woodburners - particulars are listed under 'amenities' for each property. Browse our complete collection of holiday rentals with open fires below or click on the map. Whichever one you decide to book expect a wonderfully cosy time!
Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages with an open log fire or woodburner. Nothing conjures up the image of 'home' like an open fire glowing in the evening and radiating warmth. After a long walk in the countryside, there's nothing cosier than settling down with a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate in front of a roaring log fire or crackling woodburner! Please note - we also offer a great choice of traditional cottages with an inglenook fireplace
